PRD is a dos-based program, will not work in Word.
It is a great program, wish it would, but you might have to look at something like Shorthand. Same with Stedman's. It is a Windows installation, not a copy/paste like the old dos programs (WP, etc.)
Will the Stedman's work with that version of Word? You buy the basic program and then
It will count everything if you go in the settings and program it to. Good program!
Sylcount is an awesome and accurate counting program also. That will count everything if you "tell it to".
Anyone ever used this Word program?
Microsoft Office Professional Enterprise Edition 2003. Does this have MS Word 2003?
Word count program
I have an older model puter that is slowly going up and have word 97 count program on it.  I am looking for something that is compatible with that - that also does all headers and footers - not just the header and footer on the first page that I can put on my new puter.  I have checked in to SPellex and that is really slow counting.  I also checked in to Abacus, which was fast and pretty accurate; it actually gave me a little more on a few of my reports as a trial run.  ANyone have any ideas on this.  Thanks for any help.
Depends on what word program you are using
If you are using microsoft word 2003 or even 2000, I believe, then you only put in 1 space as there is a built in space in word that already shows up and if you try to put in a second space it will go in one space when you go down to the next line. Hopes this helps.
Does your word processing program
have "search and replace" feature? That should do what you want.
Yes, it's a word expander--can be used with any program (not just DQS)

Pros and cons of word Expander programs that work with Chartscript?  PC ShortHand as opposed to Instant Text?  Which is better?  I have downloaded PC shorthand for a 30 day trial, but to me its a little slow.  Any ideas?  Thanks

You can use Shorthand in ANY program, it works outside your program
I have never found a platform it did not work with and I have worked on several different versions of Meditech. Just start using it.
You need Microsoft's Word. It is a program that requires
installation. The account sounds good at 13/cent a line. Better invest in Word (costs a bit) unless you have a kind friend who will share theirs with you.
downloading free word program
has anyone ever used open office to download word so a test can be taken?  I rent a computer from my company and I know I probably should not do this.  My question is would they know if this is being done?  Thank you.  
smartype attaches to your Word program - SM
so you cannot use it unless you open Word as well as the account's platform, and type there (then copy/pasting the reports into the facillity's system).

Shorthand works independently so works with pretty much all systems.

I've never had one that did not expand a shorcut with the space bar.
dictaphone word client program
I went into google, typed 'dictaphone word client', saw your request there and a few others re this - you might find your answer using Google search. Good luck. Jean
It's a stand alone program and doesn't pull up within Word itself. nm
Pros & Cons of ESP word expansion program?
Does this work pretty well? (I have Word 2002)  I'd like not to have to buy any software.  Any opinions on ESP?  Any other Word-compatible programs that work well, also?
That would depend on the employer's set up. Word can be interfaced with another program, sm
in that, Word would be running remotely, but in conjunction with another program. If this is the case, the documents would be saved on the employer's server and not on any drive on your pc as a Word document. If you using Word exclusively, when saving a document it would be stored on your computer's hd and/or a cd.
Get a decent word expansion program like PRD or Shorthand sm
autocorrect is very limited.  If you want to make money, your really need a good expander.
C-phone + Word versus software program
What I'm trying to say is that it seems more time consuming to use a C-Phone and Word rather than a software program because everything is just a click away with a program, whereas with a C-phone and Word you have to dial in, do paperwork, send work through e-mail, create templates, etc, etc.  Seems much more efficient to use a program thereby saving time and making more $$$.  (You can probably tell I'm still fairly to this). TIA
Can't do it. Word is kind of a clumsy program, there's a lot that is self-evident that it sho
1. Take care of that capitalization issue you were talking about.
2. Capitalize after a colon : 99% of the time, you want a capital.
3. Capitalize reliably after a period. If doing numbers, like 3.7 for a potassium, or 6.8 for a white count, it won't cap after the period (White count 2.8. hemoglobin was... the H in hemoglobin won't auto cap). Come on, Microsoft. Let us decide if we want it or not. Or what to apply it to (tables).
4. About 7 other things that it could do better, but they never work on it. Not as sexy as photos, TVs, gaming. I don't think Microsoft will ever look at Word from the production typist point of view.

Just my input. In the new versions, it won't even capitalize in a numbered list, if you don't hit the shift key. Why are we hitting the shift key 30 years after computers came out? SHouldn't they be doing the work???

Word 2003 speech recognition program
Has anyone heard of this or used it?  I have Word 2003 and it has a built in speech recogition program that I did not know existed.  From what I can see, I just have to download the software, purchase a microphone headset, and train the thing.  Has anyone used this, is it proficient, and has it increased your transcription production.  Also, I transcribe in ChartScript/NetLinc which is a Word-based program.  For those who have used the speech recognition through Word would this work for me?

Would a program like LikeMeIn work for you?

If this a problem on a work program then they should have a (sm)
Technical support person for your company contact you and that person should be able to remote into your PC and fix what the problem is. You shouldn't have to go spend money to get this fixed.

I know that is what my company does and if they can find no remedy then and only then would I take it in for service.
Yes, any AV will work with any internet program.
look up "Shared Work" Program...
for NYS, however, I believe your employer has to sign up for this particular benefit, and good luck with that one, eh? I know someone who worked like this because work was so low whenever he did not work a full week/so many hours, he got unemployment. Sounded great to me so I checked into it but did not qualify...

wouldn't it be a great option, especially for those companies who do not guarantee full-time hours (yet who expect you to commit your life and soul to them).

I would be interested to learn if anyone else knows about this or does this?

Company requested not downloading Vista as it will not work with our program.
once you use Express scribe to program it should work with any USB compatible software too.

Value of SUM program...What would you pay???>>>

I asked this on the equipment board, but I think maybe I'll get a better response here, so I hope its okay to post it here, too.

Does anyone know what the SUM CDs are worth?  There are some on ebay.  The beginning one is 2005, and usually they are the older ones on ebay.  I looked on the HPI website, but they come with books and are VERY expensive.

Anyway, does anyone have an idea of what they are worth without any extra books?  I want to bid on them, but don't know how much.  They are at $9.99 each now.  There is a beginning one, an advanced one and a surgery one.  Shoot.  I want them, but don't want to pay too much, you know? 

Thanks for any input. 

SUM Program
First, realize if you are able to study independently. The SUM cd's that are on ebay now are the new 2005 editions. You will be able to find the additional books you need on eBay over a few weeks. My advice to you is 1) go to the HPI/SUM website and print out the Student Syllabus and assignments for beginning and surgical (this will give you all of your assignments and a list of what supplies you will need, 2) email the eBay seller and make sure she is including the password codes to "unlock" the cds (Without these, they are useless to you.), then bid what they are worth to you. I have seen them go from $10 to well over $100. I sold a one myself (and not the new edition) for $125. Since I now have everything I need, I will pass on a little hint for buying cheap on eBay. Look for the packages, purchase them, take out what you need, then relist the rest. I now have a second computer (used but fine), desk (nice and new), all the reference books needed for the SUM Program, every Stedman's book that I could ever want (the latest editions), flash cards from Career Step (which come in handy), the extra AAMT cd's that M-Tec uses along with macros and every possible item I could ever want. In the end, not only did it cost me nothing, but I actually came out ahead in the end.

So, if you have the time, this is an excellent way to purchase training materials. Good luck and happy shopping.
